I know I'm supposed to be talking about VR or even it's cousin AR, but I decided to take a little break writing about the industry. There was nothing new for me to write about and even though I've been fully engaged every day in the industry, I wanted to look into some other things happening.
I know that I'm probably late to the Podcast party, but I am at the party and thoroughly enjoying it. I was introduced to the Podcast from a friend of mine that is the Executive Director of the Board of a charity that I work with called Teen Cancer America. This charity is amazing and it was co-founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the Who. If you're interested in reading more about the charity, go to www.teencanceramerica.org
My friend is Rebecca Rothstein and the she was telling me about her own Podcast called "Say it Forward", which you can subscribe to here. As I said, I didn't know anything about Podcasts and I was going on a business trip so I decided to download Rebecca's first 2 episodes and her guests were Howie Mandel and Roger Daltrey. I really enjoyed this Podcast. No commercials. Each episode was a 60 minute interview of a great guest.
I happen to like long celebrity interviews and in this format, the interviewer is able to get way more information from their guest than a 5 minute talk show interview. I started to research these Podcasts and there is such a huge variety that anyone can find something that they will enjoy listening to. I like comedy and there is an endless supply of comedians with Podcasts and many of them are great. They have business, food, music, conspiracy theories, politics and anything else you could imagine.
In fact, you can check out the top 100 ranked Podcasts from podbay.fm right here. What I'm trying to say is if you like talk radio, you will love Podcasts and you can find anything that you have an interest in. If you can't find anything that peaks your interest, just start your own Podcast!
Feel free to tell me your favorite Podcasts!
